About Our Rescue Group:Georgia Peaches Puppy Rescue is a Seattle-based organization that transports disadvantaged puppies from high-kill shelter systems to communities with limited puppy populations, providing families with puppy adoption options.
We address the needs of a sub population of young dogs in a state that is over populated due to inconsistent spaying and neutering. In the Southeast United States, there is a surplus of puppies and it is not uncommon for entire puppy litters to be destroyed. The shelters in Georgia are often crowded due to dog overpopulation as well as owner surrenders, and as a result, the euthanasia rate is high.
Puppies are something we do not have a surplus of in Seattle. Because we generally adhere to spay and neuter laws, there are less accidental litters. Therefore, a family that wants a rescue puppy has a challenge on their hands. Some give up the quest and ultimately turn to breeders. Georgia Peaches Puppy Rescue aims to give homeless puppies that have been on death row, are in high kill shelters, or are in overcrowded rescues a chance to get adopted in the dog-loving Pacific Northwest. And in turn, these Georgia Peach puppies give locals here in Seattle the option to bypass a breeder and make a choice to support puppy rescue.
We believe that a "Georgia Peach" puppy really stands for a disadvantaged puppy from anywhere in the world that is in need of rescue.
Our Adoption Process:Our adoption fee is 400 dollars and includes spay/neuter, microchip, at least one veterinary exam, deworming x 2, the entire DHPP vaccine series, bordetella and a rabies vaccine as well as a heartworm test at age 6 months. We do require a heartworm test at 12 months that is the adopters responsibility.
